This show has unlimited potential

This show has unlimited potential with the amount of different inventions and ideas you can come up with for the competitors to create the show can never get old it's simply about making the most interesting types of inventions that's what the show needs to be based around it's amazing how much you can learn and the two main stars have worked with each other in a very popular sitcom home improvement and so therefore their characters really mesh in a natural way as they are being their true selves I truly hope that they come out with a second season of this it's the only TV show that I've ever watched a long time please I hope they don't let us know support this show it is one of the most wholesome shows on TV

Richard Karn and the concept for the show a pretty good

I find some of Tim Allen‘s comments a little offputting. He’s a bit negative sometimes and that the tracks from the overall feeling of the show. Perhaps with some time the dynamic will change a little bit. I enjoy the projects so far.
